Meet Jennifer Babington
At Envision Virgin Racing, Jenn is responsible for all non-race specific affairs, from HR to RACC strategy, our Carbon Neutrality status to Partnership Agreements, business optimisation to corporate governance, and anything else you can think of in between. Alongside Sylvain, James Mercer, Chris and Leon, she forms part of the Team’s executive management. With over 10 years working in renewables, Jenn is passionate about using Formula E as a platform to accelerate our transition to a zero-carbon future so that she can look herself in the mirror every day and know that she is doing what she can to make a difference.
Prior to joining the Team in February 2019, Jenn was Chief of Staff at the UK Green Investment Bank, the UK’s £3.8bn green investment fund, established to commercialise green investment into renewable energy projects within the UK and was responsible, amongst other things, for advising the Chief Executive on key business and strategic priorities. Before that she was Legal Counsel at Element Power, a wind and solar power producer overseeing their northern European wind and solar developments, and responsible for global tax planning and HR, and before that a Senior Associate at Norton Rose Fulbright, in their London office, specialising in corporate finance and private equity investments.
In addition to her work with the team, Jenn is also Chairman of Fulcrum Group – a leading provider of utility infrastructure and services in the UK.
Born in Middlesbrough, but spending a large part of her early childhood in Kwangyang, South Korea and then studying Law at Oxford University, Jenn now lives in London with her husband, 2 children, 2 cats and a growing collection of taxidermy, some of which she has “made” herself.
